EARLY CHURCH, 9:30 am
For “folks and families on the go,” Early Church is a kid-friendly and informal service. Lasting just 45 minutes, Early Church offers a quick, spiritually grounding start to Sunday morning. We gather in a welcoming circle around the altar for this service, which includes music, a reflection on the day’s scripture, and Holy Communion. Everyone is invited to the communion table. We enjoy the unique ways that children approach worship and understand they make sounds and need to move around. Our church is large, and if little ones who want to stretch their legs, parents should feel free to take an exploratory journey! Toys are also set out on a carpeted area near the church entrance.
HOLY EUCHARIST, 11:15 am
Our more traditional service at St. Ann & the Holy Trinity features music accompanied on a landmark E.M. Skinner pipe organ. The Rite II liturgy from the Episcopal Book of Common Prayer is dignified and accessible. Prayers for healing are offered by an assisting priest for those who wish. Guest singers and musicians perform regularly at this service.
HOLY EUCHARIST, 6:00 pm
This brief, informal Rite II liturgy with Communion includes a brief homily on the appointed scriptures and provides mid-week opportunity for quiet reflection and contemplation.
We gather on Wednesdays at 12:15 pm in the church for our weekly Bible Study, a 45-minute exploration of a selected passage of the scripture. All who can are welcome and encouraged to join us.
Book of Books Book Club
The Book of Books Book Club meets from 7:00 to 8:30 pm on the first Thursday of each month. The idea is to read the entire Old Testament/Hebrew Bible between October and May, 2019. Those who join the group can read it in its entirety, read the essential stories chosen from each month’s reading, or read just the few stories or passages that we’ll discuss at the monthly meeting. A schedule of readings is available here.
Adult Education Opportunity for Adults during Sunday School
On selected Sundays, at 10:15-11:00 am, while children attend Sunday School, adults are invited to an in-depth exploration of the season’s Gospel readings and themes with the Rev. Craig Townsend and seminarian Chris Lee.
